Question

Visitor, Roy, WA, May 13, 2010, 19:00

Is there a special tool or trick to getting the plug wires off? I have pulled and twisted them with no luck. mine have a metal sleeve around the plug boot.

    I don't know of a special tool but anytime you have the spark plugs and plug wires separated apply some di-electric grease to the inside of the spark plug boots to prevent this difficulty in separating the plug wires from the plugs again.
